Amanda Collier makes nerd-inspired custom-blended nail polish that she sells on Etsy in her
Nerd Lacquer shop. They’re pretty heavy on the glitz and glitter – be sure to take a closer look at the Star Wars line (above,) A Glitter Far, Far Away.
My personal favorite, color-wise, is the Doctor Who collection,
Mad Man with a Box. There are also collections inspired by , Firefly , Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Monty Python, and more. The polishes go for $8 each, or in sets of three for $24. Star Trek
Artist Jenn Hall’s
great Artoo bike helmet has been making the rounds. (Of course there’s a how-to.) She was even Geekadelphia’s Geek of the Week.
Club Jade tends to keep it simple when we do piñatas (Death Star,
Alderaan) so I can’t help but be charmed by these two far more complicated Star Wars ones – the and a Millennium Falcon TIE fighter – by Etsy seller Antonio Sanchez. ( via)
Adrian Prazen is offering four Star Wars cuffs on Etsy. He has Rebel Alliance, Jedi, Sith and Imperial logos. There’s also one from Doctor Who. ( via)

Further reading. EU Cantina has a new column by Chris ( @VileZero) and so far he’s addressed the Darth Plagueis novel and upcoming comics as well as some gaming/ Clone Wars stuff. Check it out.
Street date shuffle. It was a slow news week, so Random House moving Denning’s Fate of the Jedi: Vortex up a week got a lot of ink. Still months away, but I did update our book schedule.
Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter (

Presented without comment. Karen Miller, whose Star Wars books have been enthusiastically received by certain areas of fandom, wants folks to know that she’s not writing homoerotic subtext into her Clone Wars books. Okay then. (It seems the rant was inspired by this thread. Sigh.)
